“[Lehane has] emerged from the whodunit ghetto as a broader and more substantial talent....When it comes to keeping readers exactly where he wants them, Mr. Lehane offers a bravura demonstration of how it’s done.”
New York Times

Moonlight Mile is the first Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro suspense novel in more than a decade from the acclaimed, New York Times bestselling master of the new noir, Dennis Lehane. An explosive tale of vengeance and redemption—the brilliant sequel to Gone, Baby, GoneMoonlight Mile returns Lehane’s unforgettable and deeply human detective duo to the mean streets of blue collar Boston to investigate the second disappearance of Amanda McCready, now sixteen years old. After his remarkable success with Mystic River, Shutter Island, and The Given Day, the celebrated author whom the Washington Post praises as, “one of those brave new detective stylists who is not afraid of fooling around with the genre’s traditions,” returns to his roots—and the result, as always, is electrifying.

Dennis Lehane is the author of ten previous novels—including theNew York TimesbestsellersLive by Night;Moonlight Mile;Gone, Baby, Gone;Mystic River;Shutter Island; andThe Given Day—as well asCoronado, a collection of short stories and a play. He and his wife, Angie, currently live in California with their children.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cool book, but an acquired taste I read it and loved it, so I suggested my spouse to give it a go. Her response was less than stellar, however. Safe to say, you'll either really like it or hate it, with no middle ground it seems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrilling! This book was excellent. It was so well written I had a hard time putting it down. I love the characters Patrick and Angela. I hope there will be more of them to come!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did I miss something? The first half of the story was well laid out, promising the complex and rich revealing of plot and character that I have enjoyed in Lehane's books. The finale felt so rushed, leaving me with the feeling that I missed about 50 pages of plot development and the question "How did we get from there to here?" I missed the opportunity for satisfying closure on the Kenzie Genaro series. Will we see more of Amanda McCready?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit disappointing I will preface this review by saying that this book is basically a continuation of the succesful Kenzie / Gennaro series by Dennis Lehane, and more importantly, a direct sequel to the hugely popular "Gone, Baby, Gone". I loved GBG, but was a bit disappointed with this effort. The story finds Patrick Kenzie once again looking for the missing girl he searched for in GBG, but now she is almost seventeen years old. Along the way, he runs into some Russian mobsters, identity thieves and drug addicts. They all combine finally to give us a rather dismal picture of the underbelly of American society, but, that being said, it was entertaining enough for the first 75% of the novel. I won't ruin the ending for anyone, but I found it to be a bit unbelievable, coincidental, and unsatisfying. It almost seemed like Lehane, one of my favorite mystery writers by the way, just gave up, or ran out of inventive ideas to conclude his work effectively.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations! I caught a small taste of Moolight Mile at the end of one of Lehane's other amazing books and was hooked. I hadn't read Gone Baby Gone yet, so I read it first and recommend doing so, even if it is just to get to know the characters and understand their motivations better when reading Moonlight Mile. An EXCELLENT read, I finished it in just 4 evenings (and I have a 2 year old at home, no small feat!) I just couldn't stop.

Editorial Reviews

“[A] work of admirable ambition and scope. . . . Lehane is as much like contemporaries George Pelecanos and Richard Price as he is like the bygone Boston-based John P. Marquand, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist.” (Los Angeles Times Book Review on The Given Day)
